Flexible conveyor systems allow you to relocate conveyor entry or exit sites by adjusting conveyor segments according to changing conditions during your business hours. These expandable conveyor solutions are often utilized in e-commerce operations or loading docks where trucks are loaded and unloaded. A single conveyor solution can be installed to feed several dock doors.

Flexible Gravity Conveyor

Flexible gravity conveyor systems are set up with skate wheels or non-powered conveyor rollers and come in a range of widths and capacities, from basic systems for occasional use to heavy duty options adequate for use in distribution centers and other intensive operations.

Although steel skate wheels are most common, these conveyors can be configured in other materials such as plastic, stainless steel and aluminum.

Steel skate wheels include many benefits and are an ideal choice for a wide variety of business uses from assembly lines to storage space. They are well suited for lightweight, flat-bottomed goods like cartons. Since each wheel operates independently from the next, they are also used for arced conveyor segments.

Gravity rollers are a better choice for heavier items, and can also accommodate uneven package surfaces in addition to flat based items. Rollers don't turn as fast as individual skate wheels, so roller solutions can be used for accumulation applications where skate wheels aren't the right fit.

Flexible Powered Conveyor

Warehouse docks are hectic places that have many functions, from packing boxes onto delivery trucks to loading and unloading semi-trailers. Flexible, compact, modular conveyors are the perfect way to improve efficiency on your loading dock while maintaining versatility.

In almost all modern warehouse operations, storage density is a top priority. When these conveyors are not being used, they can be almost fully collapsed, making a much reduced storage footprint in contrast to other alternatives.

Power conveyors can also boost safety and ergonomics. By creating a direct line between the loading dock and the end of a permanent conveyor, these systems create ergonomic benefits for your labor force, minimize injuries, increase safety and boost productivity.

Roller conveyors are available in a variety of roller widths, from 1.5-1.9 inches. They are fully height adjustable, permitting you to put them to use for different truck heights and applications. With a load standard of nearly 100 lbs per foot, these conveyors are an optimal solution for countless types of goods.

Powered options give you variable rates, from 0-120 feet per minute. Stop and start toggles are mounted on either end of the machine so that they can be actuated from both sides. They are also furnished with heavy duty castors and brakes, so they can be easily moved but solidly locked in place when necessary.

Flexible conveyors are appropriate for a wide variety of sectors, including e-com, distribution centers, beverage and grocery distribution, retail, 3PL, manufacturing, package service and more.
